    Oren Marshall

    See the "Jimi Hendrix of the Tuba" in this intimate venue.

    Described as the "Jimi Hendrix of the Tuba", Oren Marshall is a pioneering player of acoustic and electric tuba. He has collaborated with the likes of Derek Bailey, Keith Tippet, the Pan-African Orchestra and the London Philharmonic.

    As a solo artist, Oren continues to explore strategies for extending the tonal range of the tuba and opening up a new vocabulary for his instrument.

    His groundbreaking solo work led to a nomination for the BBC Innovation in Jazz award with his composition Introduction to the Story of Spedy Sponda; pt1: In a Silent Room. Intended as a composition in five parts, Spedy Sponda provides a matrix for Oren's continuing development of possibilities for solo acoustic/electric tuba.
